    i have a 160gb OS hard drive and a 120gb data drive. i want to clone the 160gb onto a new 250gb drive and then fill the rest of the drive from my data from my 120gb.
    will there be a problem?

    i also want to clone a 160gb hard drive in FAT-X format to a larger 250gb drive. does trueimage support this format? it is commonly used in xbox hard drives.

    Hello blonky,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    I'm afraid that Acronis True Image 9.0 can't clone two small hard drives onto the large one.

    We recommend you to do the following:

    -Clone your 160 GB hard drive onto the large one. Please choose As is partition transfer method;
    -Unplug old hard drive right after the disk cloning process has been finished, since keeping both original and cloned hard drives connected might cause different boot or drive letter assignment problems.;
    -Connect the 120GB drive with data;
    -Boot your computer from the new cloned hard drive;
    -Create an image of your data hard drive;
    -Restore this image to the unallocated space on the new large hard drive.

    Please find the detailed information on how to use Acronis True Image 9.0 in the respective User's Guide.

    I'm afraid that Acronis True Image 9.0 does not support FATX. It will be probably supported in the future builds/versions of Acronis True Image.You can find a list of supported file systems at our web-site here.

    If you want us to change the behaviour of Acronis True Image in any way or add some new features to this product, please feel free to post any of your suggestions in Acronis True Image WISH-LIST thread.

    Thank you.
